Our fellowship began in the early 1970s, when a small church in the country town of Prescott, Arizona, began to see an influx of hippies and young people from the wrong side of the tracks give their lives to Christ and begin to turn their lives around.
The people were not just religious but excited and hungry for God. The pastor of that church, Wayman Mitchell, began to train these young men and women for ministry within the church setting and then plant them out to begin new churches in towns across the US.
In the early 80s they sent their first couple overseas to pioneer a new church in Perth, Western Australia. Today that church numbers in the hundreds and is planting new works nationally and internationally.
Today, there are around 1800 Potter’s House Fellowship churches around the world, including dozens across Australia
